While we can never guarantee it, we can often pay cash for junk cars with no title in Wilkes-Barre.

When the Wilkes-Barre junk car buyer arrives at the pick up time, you’ll hand him the keys and the ownership documentation. After the sale, you’ll want to let the Pennsylvania Department of Motor Vehicles know that you have sold the junk car as well as see what steps are needed to cancel your registration. If there’s any insurance on the car now is the time to cancel that too. You certainly don’t want to keep paying insurance on a vehicle that you no longer own.

We buy junk cars and are proud of our long standing positive reputation.

We get it, you’re a little skeptical of an online cash for cars program. We are not like the others. Some other salvage yards, or Wilkes-Barre, PA junk yards will tell you one price over the phone or online but then pay you less when they meet with you in person.

Finally someone will call or email you about your vehicle and set up a time to see the car, maybe test drive it. Does your insurance cover them during a test drive?

What is the value of my vehicle in Wilkes-Barre?

The current average offer for vehicles near Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania is around $276 with pickup included. If you have a big pickup like a Ford F150 or SUV such as a Lincoln Navigator, the average value is at $345, but is only $234 for small and mid-size vehicles like a Ford Fusion. Obviously, your vehicle's real value depends on a number of factors:

  • The year, make, and model. If we can resell the vehicle at wholesale auction, it's worth more than scrap values.
  • How large is the vehicle and how heavy is it? Junk pricing is often based on vehicle size and weight.
  • Has the vehicle been in a wreck? Vehicles with working parts are sometimes worth more .

Here is what other cash for cars customers have said:

  • Justin's 1993 Ford Crown Victoria
    1993 Ford Crown Victoria

    "The Crown Victoria runs. It just has some engine problems and its honestly like a $350 fix for you to take care of after you buy the car (cylinder 1 misfires). It may also be the heads. No radio and it needs light upholstery work. Outside of that, its a decent car. I got a new one and didn't want to continue putting money in this one."

  • Erin's 2001 Chevrolet S-10
    2001 Chevrolet S-10

    "The truck runs but it needs a new smog pump. It also leaks oil from the back seal. Once you fix these things it would run well. The back bumper has a small dent."

  • Micah's 1998 Pontiac Trans Sport
    1998 Pontiac Trans Sport

    "The Trans Sport drives, but overheats. When you press on the gas the engine thermometer goes down to normal, but when you coast or sit at a light for a while it heats back up. The driver's side mirror came off and we had to screw it back on. "

  • Av's 1997 Chevrolet Lumina
    1997 Chevrolet Lumina

    "The vehicle needs a new engine. I got a newer vehicle so I no longer need this one. Everything works on it, it just needs a new engine. And its been sitting in one spot so the tires are going flat. The tires would need to be pumped up or new tires would have to be put on the car."

  • Stewart's 2003 Chevrolet Venture
    2003 Chevrolet Venture

    "My Venture does not run, due to a possible transmission problem. When it was running, the oil light came on. It said low oil pressure so I added oil and ended up over filling. I don't want to put any more money into it. My son was driving it and now the passenger door trim is stripped off. "

  • Shanan's 2000 Pontiac Grand Am
    2000 Pontiac Grand Am

    "While driving my Grand Am through Long Beach all the lights came on & it started acting funny so I pulled over n shut it off. Now it won't stay started. It starts with a jump. It has either an electrical shortage or a bad alternator. "
